Following on from the National League’s announcement that the 2020/21 season will cease as a result of a null and void majority vote amongst member clubs, we can issue the following statement.
The club is extremely disappointed with today’s outcome on behalf of our supporters, commercial sponsors, playing group and dedicated staff who have all worked extremely hard in planning for this season and performing throughout it to very high standards despite the regular interruptions.
A great deal of work, time, resources and a substantial amount of care and commitment has been invested in this season to date and as we made clear in previous statements on the matter, our preference was for clubs who wanted to continue to be able to do so.
We will digest and process this evening’s news – as you can appreciate there is much we have to scrutinise in the coming days – and we will weigh up all the repercussions to provide our supporters with another update, potentially early next week, on the club’s plans and further reaction to the League’s abandonment.
As always, our thanks and thoughts are with all our fans and volunteers who have supported and stood by the club so brilliantly during this difficult season to date.
As a result of this announcement, Saturday’s match v Dorking Wanderers will not be going ahead and we of course share our supporters’ disappointment.
